Is it possible to actually get charged with D.U.I. even if I was't drinking or doing drugs?
I work 3rd shift and one night I had a panic attack and got sent home from work. A friend gave me some of her medicine and told me to take it and lay down. I got home around 2am. I went sraight to sleep. The next day I got up 5 minutes before time to leave to get my daughter from school, so I threw on my house coat and ran out the door taking my toy chiwawa with me. My dog was acting funny and I tried making her behave.. Finally I gaot to a four way stop near the school and when pulling off my dog ran up my neck, scratching me along the way, and I ran off the side of the road. When I got back on the road I was pulled over, but not by the police.....it was a game warden. I tried doin the roadside test but I have to have surgery on my knee and I have never been able to walk straight.
The short answer is yes, you can be charged. In Florida, If the officer feels that he can prove you were driving...

Conufsed about out of state DUI case. What happens to my SC license when I get convicted of DUI in Missouri?
2014 I was pulled over and immediately asked for a lawyer once the officer said he could smell alcohol coming from the vehicle, taken to jail for suspicion of dui. I received tickets for refusal and dui. I immediately talked to a lawyer and they were able to keep me driving. In Feb I received a new job and ultimately moved to South Carolina. I needed a physical license at the time for proof and I was able to obtain one. I have not went to court yet, lawyers say they can win my refusal but may have to plead guilty in dui. How will this affect my SC drivers license? If my MO drivers license gets suspended will it suspend my SC dl too? What about sr22? If MO requires me to SR22, will that apply only in MO or other states too? I drive sometimes 1500 miles/week for work mainly in sc/82nd.
Most likely suspended. You'll have to eventually contact Missouri and get the hold lifted from your license.

Will my license be suspended after I complete my AEP (Alcohol Education Program)?
Down at senior week, I made a bad decision of getting into a car with alcohol and we was pulled over on the strip and gave two tickets, MIP & Open Container. The cop didn't arrest us but gave us tickets and told us she would recommend us for PTI because we just graduated High School and we had scholarships we couldn't afford to lose. I have never, ever been in trouble with the law before or in trouble at all. I didn't use my PTI but I found out about AEP and I have enrolled in it. I'm almost done with my AEP but somebody mentioned after I complete my AEP, my license will be suspended. If that was the case, wouldn't my license have done been suspended from getting the tickets? Is that true? HELP!
Actually, upon successful completion of AEP, you may apply to the court for an expungement of your arrest record....
DUI over 10 years old. Is ADSAP required in SC? Can I do ADSAP online due to work?
A DUI over 10 years old is still on driving record. First and only offense. Licensed revoked due to simple possession charges. Elegible to receive license as of 2009. What are my options to regain my license as far as ADSAP goes? The charges are so old, is ADSAP still necessary and if so, due to traveling work schedule is there an online class option through a 3rd party available?
My advice is to check with the South Carolina DMV and ask them. If ADSAP was originally required, it is unlikely South...
